River of Light returns to Liverpool's waterfront this autumn


Liverpool’s musical heritage will be the inspiration when the popular River of Light trail returns to the waterfront and city centre this autumn.

The event attracted around 120,000 visitors when it was held earlier this year.

Now it is back for two-and-a-half weeks from October 22, and with the theme of the Rhythm of the Light – celebrating the city’s great musical past and with most of the light installations being accompanied by a special soundtrack.

The artists and artworks are yet to be unveiled.

But Culture Liverpool, which is organising the event, has emphasised there will be no fireworks this November.

Councillor Harry Doyle, cabinet member for culture and visitor economy, said: “The response to the event in March was overwhelming – people’s appetite to be part of a cultural event after living through the dark times of pandemic was evident.

“It was heart-warming to see people safely venture out and enjoy the incredible local, national and international artwork which was on their doorstep.

“With restrictions eased, we hope to reach an even larger audience this year as we’ll also be able to welcome people from outside the city.”

River of Light will run from October 22 to November 7 and is free. More details HERE
